7-Eleven reups with AGR.


Andretti Green Racing has announced that it has reached a multi-year agreement with 7-Eleven Inc to extend the company's long-running sponsorship of the #11 entry driven by 2004 IndyCar Series champion Tony Kanaan.

The world's largest convenience store brand has been affiliated with Andretti Green and Kanaan since the team began competing in the IndyCar Series season at the beginning of 2003, and the extension follows hot on the heels of Kanaan - who drove the Team 7-Eleven car to the 2004 IndyCar Series title - signing a five-year contract renewal earlier this month.

“7-Eleven is one of the cornerstones of Andretti Green Racing and we're thrilled to extend our agreement with them," team marketing officer John Lopes admitted, "We've accomplished a lot together, but we feel like we can do even bigger things in the future. The Team 7-Eleven car has been a fixture at the top level of the IndyCar Series since it debuted in 2003 and we expect to keep it there for a long time.”

As well as backing the Brazilian's entry, however, 7-Eleven will also continue to have a branding presence on AGR's three other IndyCar Series cars, driven by Marco Andretti, Hideki Mutoh and Danica Patrick.

“We joined forces when Andretti Green began racing in 2003, the year Tony joined the AGR team, and have worked together over the last five years to build an even stronger 7-Eleven brand through this international platform," marketing vice-president Rita Bargerhuff reported.

"Tony exemplifies the leadership, team orientation and values we embrace at 7-Eleven and has been a terrific spokesperson. The unification of open-wheel racing earlier this year has made the IndyCar Series even more relevant to our customers. We're looking forward to enjoying future successes together.”
